Pretty in Pink

Once, there was a red-haired man who had neither eyes nor ears. He had no hair either so he was called “red-haired” only theoretically.

He could not speak since he had no mouth. He didn’t have a nose either.

He had neither legs nor arms. He had no stomach, no back, no spine, and he had no insides whatsoever. He had nothing at all! Therefore, it’s not clear who we are actually talking about.

In fact, we would rather not talk about him any more. — Blue Notebook No. 10, Daniil Kharms
